2019 Queensland Coaches Announced For Nationals


Baseball Queensland are proud to announce the finalised coaching staff for the upcoming National campaigns in 2019.

Baseball Queensland’s Junior Pathways Manager, Shayne Watson revealed that the training over winter has been more intense than ever with a big focus on skill development and on-field participation, “This winter has been a more extensive program with an increase in participation and time on field. The intent this year was to include more athletes in the program by the way of extending invitations to athletes from each region. This program ran twice a week at various venues focused to improve baseball specific skill, game situation and awareness and general physical development. The athletes have been going for a solid 16 weeks and am excited to see how everyone competes during the up and coming State Titles.”

When asked how he anticipates the campaign will develop from last year Watson said, “Following its success last year, the U16 program will continue to compete in the GBL Div III competition. This year we will be implementing a new strategy with this group arriving in Sydney a few days earlier than the expected arrival date. We are in the early stages of planning, but I am in the process of confirming additional games against New South Wales, Country New South Wales and ACT prior to the Nationals commencing. The intent is to add value to the National Championship campaign by adding more games to the overall stay in Sydney. I am excited to see how the teams progress through their preparations and compete at their respective National Championships.”
